Indy Lights has its second consecutive first-time winner in the books, as Jack Harvey scored an overdue first victory for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports’ No. 42 entry Saturday at Mid-Ohio. Alex Baron had won at Toronto, but the young Frenchman was unable to compete this weekend.
Harvey thoroughly dominated the Mid-Ohio 30-lap, 40-minute sprint race from pole position, winning by 17.3403 seconds over Gabby Chaves.
Chaves extends his points lead to 29 over Zach Veach, who finished fourth. Luiz Razia split the pair on this day in P3. Matthew Brabham ended P5.
It was a fairly uneventful and caution-free race. Harvey could well enter into title contention of his own with another win on Sunday.
